The room was very clean and tidy. Tracy at reception was great. She was very friendly and helpful, she told us where was the best places to eat. The shower was great and the beds very comfortable.The location of our room was great because we left early and didn't wake the other guest up at 0600hrs.

The rooms were very clean and tidy and the room was cool! Free WIFI is always a nice surprise!! I would have no issues in recommending The Mud Hut to anyone passing through just needing a good sleep for the night and a shower in the morning prior to getting on the road again for a long day ahead.

Very nice manager was at airport to pick us up. Our room was spacious and clean. Arrangements were made for a tour of the opal mines, and great suggestion for dinner. Breakfast at hotel was prepared by the same manager and was delicious. Definitely recommend.

First--the good 1. we were picked up promptly at the airport. And returned two days later. 2. Very unusual motel--engineers, architects and geologists would especially find it interesting. The dirt walls look like cork. 3. The evaporative cooling unit really does cool, but the constant noise and blowing drove us crazy after a while. And we used to live with... More

we were on our way to Darwin & this was day six of the trip & it was getting to the "are we there yet?" stage so having a good place to spend the night is important. The Mud Hut Motel definitely fits that bill. Large well appointed rooms. A secure place to park close to your room. Well within... More

After spending all day driving in a car it was lovely to arrive at a very clean and spacious accommodation. The room was lovely and up to date with technology - plenty of USB ports to charge phones and iPads. The free wifi was also a lovely surprise. We chose to stay at the Mud Hut as it was pet... More

We chose the Mud Hut as it was middle of the range in price and my wife does not like being underground. Unfortunately the restaurant was not functioning during our visit, but the manager was very friendly and she went out of her way to recommend eating establishments in the town. She also saw that we had maps and information... More

This is a very clean well kept motel, the rooms are extremely comfortable, well appointed and within walking distance of eateries. The prices are very competitive for the region. The reception has a good knowledge of the attractions in Coober Pedy and will advise on what is worthwhile seeing.

I was very pleased with the rooms cleanliness, spaciousness and coolness when I first walked in. All the normal items were provided in the bathroom except a hair dryer. The kitchen had a microwave, kettle and toaster. The kingsize bed was very comfortable too. I was able to park a large bus within the grounds of the Motel which was... More
